    Not sure what feed you are getting, but during the superbowl, the HDTV (DTV really) FOX feed had a TON of audio droppouts. The halftime show included. It really made it difficult to watch.

    Hey Todd. The NYC feed was totally unwatchable.. but I pointed to Philly and it was great.

    Overall the picture quality and widescreen.. I was very impressed. Didn't expect that from FOX. But NYC feed was having all kinds of problems.

    Unfortunatley in Cleveland, FOX had a power surge on Sat. & it blew out their Digital board that does the 16x9!! So we got to watch it in horrible 4:3! Yuck. Add that to the audio drop-outs & it was just plain terrible here. I talked to the head engineer at FOX Cleveland & he was so upset about it happening this way. A nice guy who is willing to talk to the viewers is rare. Oh well...we'll see it next year in HDTV I hope.
